Wisconsin-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and guitarist JARED JAMES NICHOLS — famous for his shimmering guitar shapes, fizzed up rhythms and grit-fed voice [ it’s just the right-side of charcoaled bourbon] — will be supporting the legendary American hard rock Band L.A. Guns on their upcoming UK tour.
We thought Jared’s 2017 album titled “Black Magic” had “more baited hooks ‘n’ anchors [and] was more catchy than a bunch of bear traps and richer than a beaver pelt… The guitar solos came faster than spin-stabilized bullets...”
The tour follows his UK tour with Stone Broken & The Bad Flowers in February/March 2018.
Over the past years Jared has built up a solid reputation as an exciting heavy blues-rock live act and wild-maned stage-stallion and has shared stages with the likes of ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zaak Wylde, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout, Blue Oyster Cult, UFO and Saxon.
